were particularly dire for the republican presidential candidate mitt romney in the election, presidential election polling this past month conservatives decided these polls showing an american electorate that is choosing president obama over mitt romney, these polls made them feel so uncomfortable they decided to develop a new fantasy electorate that they would poll in theory and their fantasy electorate which is not the real electorate would give them a much more comforting list of results in terms of their fake polls. it was the same dynamic at work when they invented conserve-a-pedia. something you read about the world on wikipedia, if it makes you uncomfortable as a conservative, conserve-a-pedia is guaranteed to only contain information that makes you feel okay. if you are discomfited by the idea the human species is a result of millenia of evolution for example conserve-a-pedia has you covered. don't worry. not only has conserve-a-pedia been debunked by the obvious fact that humans and dinosaurs co-existed, but in fact according to conserve-a-pedia dinosaurs are actual
effectively tie mitt romney to the republican party and its core commitments, both how it acts in the house and the things he has said during the republican debates. and that never really happened tonight. but those of course are the facts of the matter. the idea that mitt romney won't cut taxes on people at the high end of the income scale apreposterous. i think you would agree. obviously if the republicans get into power they are going to cut taxes at the high income and he got on stage tonight and said no. >> romney's problem is that this debate is in 2012, not 1812. we have things we can hit a button to show what he has said before. no doubt mitt romney was at his best tonight but his best is not good enough. when you look at the fact that he's saying that taxes will not go up on the middle class, yet he is proposing all the way through this campaign, dealing with deductions in terms of mortgage investmes, dealing with deductions in terms of charity, it will in fact go up on the middle class and a much lower tax rate for the rich. the fact will not bear him out. when he stood there all
republicans that it will a lot to. mitt romney loses, paul ryan will still be the budget chairman. democrats can line up all these big spending initiatives if they want to, but the fact is that the house is still going to be majority republican. if republicans don't take back the senate is going to be the same situation that we have ad for the past two years. i would say that they're going to go as far as trying to decorate the office before they have it. we might see another turnaround election in the year 2014 like we did in 2010 if they continue to push this big spending big government. neil: you're not giving up on spending. it almost sounded like you were. >> well, i am just simply saying if they are going to go with decorating the office. neil: thank you very, very much. don't look now, but he is back. remember caught 20 years later. back with a vengeance, and a new warning. deep in debt. ross perot fears we are easy date to be taken down. a former clinton press secretary, debate commission on those warnings from a guy who two decades ago almost up into the presidential race. very goo
. >> the question a lot of people asked, republicans particularly are, where has this mitt romney been so far, but what's your take? >> well, i think the great thing about mitt romney going into this debate was he arrive d ami expectations and could only surprise on the upside. he managed to play it very calm and project a very moderate voice. he was very reassuring and he managed to hone in on the errors the obama campaign has been talking about to do with the middle class. and he tried to reclaim the middle class debate as his own. the fact of the expectation so low that he was in some ways the underdog really played to his advantage. it will be quite interesting to see what happens the next debate when it will be obama who will be the underdog instead. >> there were times when the president made a point, all there was sometimes a little me andering to get there. let me play one of those examples. >> i've got to tell you, governor romney, when it comes to his own party during the course of this campaign, has not displayed that willingness to say no to some more extreme parts of his party. >

to help. hey, ohio, when you're thinking about voting for mitt romney, think alabama republicans. on the day of his inauguration, alabama's current republican governor said quote, anybody here today who has not accepted jesus christ as your savor, i'm telling you you're not my brother and you're not my sister. the last time we had a snar who wrote and did a speech about how slavery was not only justified by the bible, he said the under appreciated thing about slavery in the united states was how good slavery was for black people. this was in 1996, not 1896. and the reaction by alabama republicans, well, they just kept him around. he stayed in the state senate for two more years after the slavery was good for black people thing. why not? why get rid of him? what's the problem? last year when demonstrators came to alabama to protest its immigrant law, the party chairman told the press quote this is recommend necessary event of others coming into our state to cause trouble. remind you of that, huh? the mitt romney for president campaign is about to get the benefit of a self pro clai

. so if you're a republican partisan who wants mitt romney to win, you have to be concerned about this political reality that voter registration has been stopped by your party in those swing states. the but if you're worried about voter fraud about the possibility of voter fraud, you don't have to worry about this group's history that was hired by the rnc about whether they have done something that is going to prevent votes from being counted. not fake votes, real votes. this group is alleged to have gotten progressives to sign up to vote and thrown away the registration forms of the voters who signed up as democrats. did this happen? this group has been fired now. they say they're sorry but given what they were accused of in past. how much damage has been done? might it work to suppress the vote anyway? now with today's ruling. the list of states where republicans try to change the law to block voters from being able to cast ballots. includes wisconsin, texas, florida, arizona, south carolina, ohio and now pennsylvania and mississippi. back to back the courts have stepped in and

of paul ryan and mitt romney have not been about some secret past for these men. unless you count paul ryan pledging his allegiance back in 2005. the tape that's made a big impact against the republican side this year has been tape of things that paul ryan and mitt romney have been saying within the past year. specifically when they are talking to conservative audiences. so two weeks ago, david corn and ryan grim at "the huffington post" posted video of romney talking to wealthy donors in florida. deriding the 47% of the country that he said did not pay federal income taxes and who were dependent on the government and victims and who he would never be able to reach because he would not be able to purr suede them to take responsibility for their lives. >> i'll never convince 47% of the country to take personal responsibility and care for their lives. those comments he describes his disdain for half the country, those comments have had a measurable impact on the campaign. in the new poll just released in the last couple hours, people say those remarks from mr. romney made them feel more

of the substance of that it statement from mr. romney, it did turn the whole republican pundit class against him, called every candidate in a contested race to distance themselves from the presidential nominee of their party to start campaigning against mitt romney, telling voters, listen, i don't like that guy on that issue either, but vote for me any way even though i'm a republican. whether or not you think the remarks were scandalous, the polling impact of them is now showing up directly at a time when mr. romney's egregiously bad polling numbers seem to be calcifying and when most voters are now starting to vote. an incredibly negative impact for romney and his campaign at a difficult time for them. now on the eve of the first presidential debate, if they were hoping to put that behind them, any hope of getting away from the issue has now been expunged because "the huffington post" tonight set off its own bells and whistles, flashing siren bomb shell by posting previously uncirculated video of paul ryan speaking less than a year ago. and what will effect the debate tomorrow is mr. ryan in t

tied. but a lot of people say it's romney's night to shine. this is the contra costa county republican party campaign office. people up there are sitting on the edge of their seats, waiting to hear from the man, mitt romney, they say will be the next president of the united states. it's the first head-to-head debate between president obama and his republican challenger mitt romney. many people agree there are major differences between the two, who will battle it out for about 90 minutes on domestic issues, which is exactly what some people we spoke with say they want to hear. >> they're professionals. they're good at it. the information they have on hand and who do they speak to. you're singing to the choir on one hand, then going for the independents on the other. >> there's some specific plans i want to hear that people have, exactly how they plan to implement their change. >> but it still doesn't matter because you made up your mind, though? >> that's right. >> reporter: here at the republican headquarters, volunteers are preparing for a weekend of campaigning. >> this is a crucial
with republicans but with undecided voters? >> i think it helped some, but the person who helped governor romney most was governor romney. on wednesday night, he was before almost 70 million people, a lot of them undecided voters trying to make up their mind. he made a very clear case that, you know, he is someone who can connect. i thought the thing that was most shocking to me was the fact that the governor -- you know, the president has said to be better liked, more likable, better able to connect with voters, and it seemed to me as though the governor did a better job at doing those thingsn wednesday night than the president. so i think he helped himself tremendously. >> i want you to take a look at this poll with me. this is a quinnipiac poll. there it is. there you go. likely voters, who cares about the needs and problems of the people like you was the question. obama 60%. romney 46%. what do you make of those numbers? >> i think we'll have to see how those numbers change over the course of the next few weeks i don't know that those numbers actually reflect what voters got to see. the pres
the next president will be. and republicans have said that this next candidate, mitt romney, cannot win the white house if he can't get at least 40% of the latino vote. he's nowhere near that right now, randi, so this should be a big problem for republicans. >> amy, latinos say that the democrats have done a much better job in terms of reaching out to latinos and minority voters. what, if anything, do republicans need to do to turn around that perception? is it too late? >> well, interestingly, during the conventions, president obama, he outspent mitt romney 7-1, but the spending that mitt romney did do during his convention was mostly in hispanic media. so you see the romney campaign is very aggressively trying to court and reach out to hispanic voters. but let me get to this 40% number that maria threw out there. in fact, george bush did win in 2000 with 35% of the hispanic vote, depending on who you're talking to in 2004, he won between 41% and 44%, and that was really surprising. that was a high water mark. because last mid-term election, interestingly, in 2010, you had record hispa
in this country because we're standing up and enforcing trade rules. >> romney and the republicans keep talking about another tax cut for the job creators. don't we just see them increasing their profits by outsourcing this way? i mean, the model that romney wants to lay on the country, how could it be good for workers in ohio? >> well, it's not. we tried these tax cuts for the rich. hoping it trickles down to the middle class, it doesn't work. what works is when you build the economy from the middle class out. the auto rescue has worked in ohio. we're not where we need to be, but more than three percentage points lower than in 2010. we have more tire jobs, more steel jobs, more aluminum jobs in sydney, ohio. i want the president to take one more step and that is and romney could help us with this. they could pass my legislation in the house. we have passed it in the senate to level the playing field on chinese currency, the largest bipartisan jobs bill to pass the senate. we're asking -- >> he hasn't. and the romney camp keeps coming back. it's passed in the senate and boehner won't bring it u
for republicans in pennsylvania. earlier this year one of the party leaders boasted the law would help mitt romney win the election. >> voter i.d., which is going to allow mitt romney to win the state of pennsylvania, done. >> pennsylvania is just one of 41 states to pass restrictive new voting laws since president obama won in 2008. so far 17 states have successfully passed restrictive votesing laws since president obama won the white house. republicans in ohio tried to squash early voting. the gop tried to purge the voter roles in florida. the republicans have claimed all along they are trying to stop voter fraud. but look what happens. it turns out they are the ones who were cheating. a get out the vote scandal is rocking the republican party. strategic allied consulting was hired to help register voters. now they are firing the firm. florida has turned up 100 suspicious voter forms and in colorado one worker was caught on tape claiming she worked for the county? >> you work for romney obama? >> i thought you were rej sterg voters. >> i am. >> who are you registering? all voters? >> i'm trying
to the electorate that, oh, i'm george romney, i am this centrist candidate who wants to see a big tent republican party. let's see it for real. so far what we've seen is some talk on a debate in which he unquestionably faced a president of the united states who was not prepared for the debate or for the new mitt romney. >> well, we saw a new barack obama yesterday on the campaign trail. i'm guessing we're going to see -- >> not new, the same as he's been all along. he just happened to lose that persona. >> different than the debate. >> he lost the persona in the debate. now he seems to have gone back to it. he does much better when he's out campaigning than he does in debates generally. that was the case previously. it seems to be the case now. he, too, needs to be more consistent in terms of how he looks to this electorate, and i presume we're going to see more of the campaigning obama than we saw in that debate, and at the same time he has got to tell a story here that sticks to numbers that are real. i think that if one party and one candidate can really stick to the real tale of where we are
win for obama. >> reporter: some obama supporters conceded that republican nominee mitt romney performed better than expected. >> when you see the two together on the screen, romney is kind of smiling and smirking. >> i thought romney would fall apart. >> i give an edge slightly to obama. i think he's doing an effective job, in explaining just what he's accomplished the last four years. >> reporter: less than two miles away at the contra costa county republican headquarters, romney supporters gave their candidate high praise. >> romney needs to be personal, patient, show his plan, and he is. he has to describe how growing the economies will apply to revenues better than raising taxes. >> reporter: one romney supporter told us both men delivered strong performances. >> obama is also convincing that it is a little more freestyle, but still very organized. but i like romney appearing very organized when they first start off. >> i think he'll win the debate and the race. >> i hope. i want him to win. >> reporter: both republicans and democrats we spoke with tonight said the debate

with what they hope to be new republican voters. it is a $12 million boost into the debate for mitt romney and stands in the face of staggering numbers from the barack obama campaign reporting last month they collected over $181 million. that does not rival what obama did four years ago in october, before the 2008 presidential election, but is still a massive amount of money, last night, talking to the romney campaign and the big fund-raising dollars the obama campaign was putting up, romney staffers smiled as if to suggest they might top it. >> arthel: and also a statement, romney pushing his tax policy, this weekend, right? >> reporter: of course in the wake of the debate in which the romney campaign it really defined the race, a choice between a dependency society with rising taxes that could hurt the recovery, versus the romney agenda which could cut taxes and rely fully on a smaller government and individual responsibility and entrepreneurial spirit and the romney campaign is attacking ever harder. here's a sample from last night. >> it has been calculated his tax plan raising taxes w

obama and mitt romney sharing a few moments on stage after back-to-back democratic and republican presidential debates in new hampshire. they also ran into each other at a labor day parade in 2007. a campaign source cataloging the meetings tells cnn these are just two of the three times the candidates have ever seen each other in person. flash forward to 2012 one day before the debate. romney briefly stopped for lunch grabbing bued burritos at chipo >> people want to know who's going to win. who's going to score the punches? >> reporter: at a pre-debate rally in denver, romney seemed to down play reports that his campaign has prepped him with zingers to go after the president. >> it's not so much winning or losing or the people themselves, the president and myself, it's about something bigger than that. it will be a conversation with the american people that will span almost an entire month. >> reporter: romney aides say the gop nominee is adjusting debate tactics away from what worked with a handful of opponents on stage to a more one-on-one approach. >> there's one person on sta
for contrast. when gov. romney stood on stage with other republican candidates for the nomination, he was asked, would you take $10 of spending cuts for $1 of revenue? he said, no. if you take such an unbalanced approach, that means you will be getting our investments in education.d i this means a 30% cut in the primary program we have four seniors in nursing homes, kids with disabilities. that is not a right strategy for us to move forward. >> way over the two minutes. what about simpson bowles. i have my own plan. in my view the president should have grabbed it. if he wanted to make some adjustments, take it, fight for it. >> we have made some adjustments and we are putting it before congress right now. >> you have been president for four years. we still have $1 trillion the deficit. if you are elected we will get to a $1 trillion debt. i love this idea of $4 trillion in cuts. we still show a $1 trillion deficits every year. that does not get the job done. let me come back and say, why is it that i do not want to raise taxes? you said back in 2010, i will extend the tax policies that we have
romney in a different way said look, i'm going to work together with democrats and republicans and there is a very effective presentation in that regard there. is wrn reason take those things together and president obama's supporters have every reason to be upset tonight. >> and tomorrow we'll have fact checking done on everything. and in terms of this president obama supporters one of my colleagues spoke with leader pelosi and she must have seen a different debate than the rest of the democrats were tweeting tonight it says pelosi says defining moment was when romney said he would not ask the wealthyest americans to pay their fair share. that was, i mean a defining moment made for leader pelosi but... it did not seem like a great night for the president. >> interest there is 55 million people watching. people goring to make their judgments independent of the kmechblts very interesting, the president off times the talking points. so one thing he said romney had secret plans on jobs, economy and regulation. and taxes. just after romney spent time giving the details on awful thos
's a recurrent theme. with mitt romney the recurrent theme among republicans, the reason he doesn't have a lot of frentsds in his party is the idea that he's a vicious debater. newt gingrich called him a liar in which he demolished supposedly the best debater in the republican party and he is known to be a flip-flopper. what did he do in that debate, he flip-flopped. everybody played the type. >> dedrick's point is smart about mitt romney in some ways was the beneficiary of lowered expectations and the beneficiary of the success of the obama campaign as painting him as a character of a ba foonish budocrat. by the time john kerry took the debate stage the bush campaign had done such a good job of making him look like a ridiculous figure and then he came out and it was like, oh, right, this is a smart, competent individual who spent his life in the united states senate. it was the same thing with mitt romney. it was a reminder for all of the characture and for all the reasons he would make a terrible president, he is not an idiot and a ba foon. he can show up at a debate and attack. >> as joanne
that, throughout the republican presidential primary debate, mitt romney was considered to have lost most of them. every week, there is another star with romney in the debate. -- ipeople don't realize have great confidence that the presence will continue his momentum. >> my condolences on the mets this year, congressman. [laughter] >> thank you. >> we had a big never come out to do with the jobs report. there is some sense that that may be booing democrats today. do you think that will be a factor in competitive districts? >> we are talking on this friday afternoon when the jobs numbers have come out. our viewers will be watching on sunday. go ahead, congressman. >> we still have work to do. the fact that unemployment is now under 8% says that we are heading in the right direction under the very economic policies that governor romney is articulating and espousing. we had crushing unemployment. unemployment went up there is a month. as a result of policies that democrats have been articulating, we're going in a better direction. i would rather be going in that direction. these numbers
. it's arithmetic. >> republicans insist the policies are failures and democrats say governor romney doesn't have a specific plan. republican senator johnson joins us from denver. you've been in the bubble of the debate. and most people sh most polls which are inaccurate show governor romney won this debate. and i'm curious what you think overall impact will be for the candidate? >> this is a really great performance by the governor. and i think it resets the campaign giving him on opportunity to take his case to the american people. and so mup of what people have heard, seen, read about mitt romney comes through a filter, tonight he has a chance to draw a contrast between his vision for the future of the country and last four years with the president which has been a staying nant economy, chronic unemployment and massive amounts of debt. and mitt romney got a chance to put forward his plan and vision this evening and i think it's going to have a significant impact on the narratives in days and week as head its interesting the debate elevated the discussion. we didn't hear anything a
on romney. >> i think the expectations for the debate are too high. particularly conservative republican americans are expecting mitt romney to go out there and do something and i don't know whether that as even possible right now. the first debate means everything. the whole world is watching this thing. this is a big, big debate on wednesday night. this is much bigger than the mccain-obama debate. >> today mitt romney traveled from boston to colorado where the debate will be held as a major player in romney's fund raiser confirmed to fox business that a few new york donors have backed away from financial commitments to the romney campaign and instead said they will spend their money to help the republicans hold on to the house of represents and pick up seats in the senate. the debates will be very important, said one person with knowledge of the matter. if romney does well, that money could come back. >>> new jersey's governor, chris christie the current front runner for the presidential nomination 2016 has decided his job is to state the obvious. >> it's a huge night. we've had a bad
republicans called mitt romney's gaffe-filled july tour of england, israel, and poland, when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, "the new york times" said romney's response showed an extraordinary lack of presidential character. >> the obama campaign said this will be romney's seventh speech on foreign policy. >>> venezuelan president hugo chavez gets to keep his job for another seven years, but his re-election came in the slimmest margin ever in his nearly 14 years in power. he won just 54% of the vote. actor danny glover, a longtime supporter of chavez, was on hand for a day of heavy voter turnout. chavez's opponent, a former state governor, accused him of using the oil to his advantage. he told backers the revolution has triumphed and that supporters were voting for socialism. >>> well, talk about wedding crashers. in philadelphia, police had to break up a brawl involving almost 100 guests from two separate wedding parties. one man died of a heart attack and several people were injured, and it was all captured on cell phone video. nbc's frances coe has details. >> reporte
. everybody has been waiting to find out if mitt romney looks like such a losing prospect that republicans will be cut lose to essentially campaign on their own to campaign against them. but campaigning on the assumption that it mitt romney is going to lose? that's something new. and it's even weirder when voiced by scott brown tonight. that's coming up. >>> it seems to me first of all from what i understand from doctors, that's really rare. if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> that's the senate candidate from missouri this year, congressman todd akin. one of the things lost as soon as he said what he said about legitimate rape is his democratic opponent claire mccaskill had hand selected todd akin to be her opponent before he ever made the comments about rape. claire mccaskill used campaign money to run ads that were for todd akin advertising him to republican primary voters as the true conservative in the race. that's because claire mccaskill knew before he made his rape comments that he's the kind of guy who would make comments lik
romney had been held considered lukewarm in terms of the republican base early on in this. has that changed now? >> it has, indeed, lester. the romney campaign is trying to use the momentum from his debate performance to fire up that base and it seems to be working as well as motivating his grassroots organization. that effort was slightly blunted by the jobs numbers, one of his talking point, but the campaign is clearly feeling a lot of energy. the biggest change is they have a coherent message, one message. why would the next four years be any different than the current four years? the problem for team obama, the president didn't make that case for himself when he had 70 million people at the debate and now they'll take down mitt romney with fact-checking and challenging what he said in the debate in advertisements and speeches, but they will not have that same, large audience. >> peter noted that later in the week, the vice presidential debate will take place. could that be a potential game changer given the uneven debate we just saw this past week? >> normally the vice pres
in that race bob casey ahead of his republican challenger by eight points. as mitt romney's, shall we say, second place standing starts to look like more and more of a permanent residence as it seems like a long shot for winning the presidency, the down ticket effect of that is starting to become a bigger part of the conversation. you saw a manifestation of that last week on this show when nancy pelosi came on this show and said, essentially, democrats can win back the house. nancy pelosi said not only is she confident that democrats can get the 25 seats they need to take e back control of the house, which is a huge number, she says she, quote, liked to have 35 seats, which would be a lot. and while it is news worthy that the democrats think they can take back the house, it should be said that a number of other observers looking at the same prospect are call k the idea that the democrats could take back the house pretty much impossible. politico publishing a piece on it. one of the consequences of republicans winning so many seats in the state legislatures in the big election of 2010 is t
legislate romney in a republican house and senate, will extend all the bush tax cuts for one year, do fundamental tax reform that's revenue neutral, not a tax increase, passing the ryan budget to bring entitlement spending down so the spending goes from 24% of gdp to 20%, 16%. if obama wins, democratic house and senate, his budget takes spending up to 38% of the economy during that same period. a government twice as large. if you have split government, obama gets elected in a republican house or republican house or senator, what happens is exactly what happened two years ago which is they'll extent bush tax cuts for two years and fight it out in two years. there's not going to be a cliff. everybody knows this because if obama shuts down the government in january, the democrats lose ten senate seats, ten of which are vulnerable in 20 # 14. a democratic senate and republican house encysts that obama extends the tax cuts. gerri: i'm not sure everybody is so sanguine. mitt romney's been called a liar for the ideas on taxation and taxes. he wants to cut taxes 20% across the board for every

of the democrats sitting back saying on the $600 billion medicare cuts, why don't you support romney supports those cuts because he supports the ryan budget. on social security, why don't you pott point out -- point out the republican party wants to privatize it. i wanted to be the head coach speaking into president obama's ear. i read the transcript. the transcript is factually the president will be fine there. you know, it looked like he was not prepared for mitt romney etch-a-sketching his way out of this debate. that's really what mitt romney did. he grabbed his etch-a-sketch we've been waiting for it. he literally became a totally different politician with different views. his $5 trillion tax plan, you know he said only embrace teachers. he talked about how regulation was essential. these are all views and positions that romney has never supported over the course of the 18 months. i think that was really surprising and i think that actually shook the president a bit and he didn't really know how to deal with it. i

of republicans before the debate, they would say variations of romney needs to show people that he is an alternative to obama, that he's someone who could be president. and i think in this debate, a lot of people thought that he showed that. and so, that's why you see, i mean, this enthusiasm. romney needs people to go out and vote, so this is a good indicator for republicans. >> and yet, the obama campaign thinks they have found something out of that debate that could work for them, which brings us to the "sesame street" ad. we played it. it's something president obama is even working into his stump speech. >> elmo has been seen in a white suburban. he's driving for the border. oscar's hiding out in his trash can. governor romney's plan is to let wall street run wild again, but he's going to bring the hammer down on "sesame street." >> o.j. simpson and "sesame street" in the same new line there, anne. certainly, this is the kind of thing people are talking about. it's going to run all over cable today, but will it make a difference? >> yeah, you know, it's good pictures, it made f
